Celebrate Black History Month with VG — Support Oakland-Based Nonprofit Farms to Grow
Black History Month doesn’t end with February. We must keep this in mind as we diligently seek environmental justice and social justice. They are one and the same.
Verdical Group is proud to share that we are celebrating Black History Month with a donation to Farms to Grow, a nonprofit working to promote the legacy of Black farmers, sprout the next generation of small farmers, and help Black farmers access urban food markets including schools, restaurants, and individuals.
We chose this organization based on their unique position at the intersection of social and environmental justice, understanding that environmental justice is social justice (check out one of our favorite explanations of this concept, written by Leah Thomas for Vogue).
Farms to Grow is based in Oakland, where we recently opened our newest office location. As a B Corporation and 1% for the Planet Member Company, we understand the importance of giving dedicated support to local organizations in the communities we work in. You can learn more about the crucial work that Farms to Grow is doing in their local community here.
